However, most travelers know the salvation a good Internet connection can be when traveling, especially when on those longer journeys. This simple connection provides you with access to the rest of the world, quite literally speaking. Moreover, that very same connection can mean complete entertainment for long travels, or a lack thereof.
Saying the Internet provides relief to boredom is one thing, but when you consider just how vast it is, what is there actually to do? Perhaps, a hand or two of blackjack at Party Casino can fill up an hour or two. Maybe catch up on some work you have been neglecting (a travel blogger’s work never seems to end). A laptop can be your best friend when on the road, so do not forget to bring your charger.
If the above is of no interest to you, then try turning to the true authority on the web—Google! This powerful search engine can provide a solution for practically anything. Try it! Slap your keyboard and watch as Google generates hundreds, if not thousands, or results for the jibberish you literally “slapped” into the search box. Although, the results you receive from that will probably be pointless in your quest to relieve boredom.
Instead, try searching for online games. There are thousands upon thousands of games online that can occupy hours at a time. From eighteen holes of 2D action on the miniature-golf course, to a virtual game of Monopoly, played with folks you have never met. Whatever niche of gaming you enjoy, chances are good that you will find a vice rather easily.
Aside from that, YouTube, the popular video search engine is another alternative to boredom. From music, to news, to sports, to a random compilation of drunk girls falling over, YouTube has a video for just about everything. Not to mention it is easy to kill an hour or two exploring the “Related Videos” that appear on the ride side of the screen. It is amazing how irrelevant some of these related videos can be. One minute you could be watching the latest news, then the next, a cute kitten falling asleep.
The options mentioned above are just a few of the many choices you have in regards to using the Internet to defeat “traveling boredom.” Besides, anything beats just sitting there, right? Then again, you could always use your traveling time as an opportunity to catch up on some sleep.
